Rasheed Ogunlaru, life coach and speaker at rasaru.com, said that the integration of email and other tools into smartphones have blurred the lines between the working day and home life.
He noted that many people find themselves automatically responding to messages at all times of the day and night - and even on weekends and holidays.
The key is that people must take charge and responsibility for managing their emails, the expert said.
"The reality is that emails will not stop arriving - they will continue to flood in day and night. Many clients I work with receive hundreds or more a day. This means that you need to take charge of when you read emails," Mr Ogunlaru advised.
It pays to put aside time to do key tasks, which means managers may also need to educate people about what emails to send, when, and what response time to expect, he stated.
"It's really important to switch off - do you even know where your mobile off button is? Use it if necessary and know when the working day is done," the expert concluded.
